CRAFT Challenge #459 Animals

Hi, guys! If it's Thursday there must be a new CRAFT Challenge! Our new theme is nice and easy - Animals.

Here are some frogs having fun!

Aren't they cute? The image is from ScrapNDipity. I used papers from an old Bo Bunny collection called 'Ad Lib.' The sentiment is from Altenew's Label Love stamp set.

I cut the centre panel too narrowly and had to add another piece, and I covered the seam with some very old paper ribbon to hide it! There's usually some way to hide a mistake, isn't there?

Our sponsors this week:


and DRS Designs.

Do hop along to the Challenge blog and enjoy the fab inspiration my teamies have left to inspire you!

Thanks for looking and have a good weekend! (Not long now!)

My Time to Craft #366 Easter/Spring

Good morning! Whan you read this I will be busy helping out with the annual Church Spring Clean! It's a lot of fun, loads of laughter and also CAKE to keep us going!

In the meantime I've scheduled today's post for our new Challenge at My Time to Craft where our theme is Easter or Spring.

In keeping with my New Year's Revolution to USE my kits I have found an image printed on TH watercolour cardstock from Simon Says Stamp's March 2016 kit.

I used Distress Inks to colour the image, then cut round the top edge and layered it on foam pads on a piece of distressed blue paper from stash. The sentiment is also from an SSS kit, and the speech bubble is from an old Paper Smooches set. I added sparkle to the Easter eggs and Glossy accents to the chick's bill and heart.

My watercolouring is slo-o-o-wly improving but still not as good as I'd like. Practice makes perfect!!

Go and see my teamis' lovely creations, and join in the Challenge - SPRING IS JUST AROUND THE CORNER!!!

Thanks for looking and have a fab weekend!

And Happy Mothering Sunday, too!

CRAFT Challenge #458 Christmas

We have our regular Christmas Theme at CRAFT Challenge this week!

This cutie is Overstuffed Santa by Lacy Sunshine stamps. I love that his toy sack is stuffed with delicious cookies!

All the papers are from an old pad by Kaisercraft, including the sentiment. The glitter trim at the top is made with a punch and I used the trimmings to add to the bottom of the card to give more festive bling!

Our fab sponsor is Lacy Sunshine.

My teamies have made some lovely creations to inspire you - do join in!!

Thanks for looking and have a great weekend!

Be Dazzling!

Morning, all!

One of my New Year's Revolutions was to USE the card kits that I have amassed over the years! I have been making cards with a kit from Love From Lizi.

I rounded two corners of my base card, added a strip of Versamark ink and gold-embossed, then added a pretty paper from the ket and a gold glitter peel-off.

The gorgeous wooden diamond is gilded, it's much more gold irl. I added gold and white bakers twine from my stash. The sentiment is from a cut-out that came with the kit, I added Glossy Accents to the letters. The star banners are made with a die that came with the kit, backed with gold glitter card. Finally I added sequins.

Not my usual style, (and the photo makes the colours look dull, unfortunately - there's a lot of gold sheen and glitter here!) but I like it!

Thanks for looking!

The Holly and Ivy Christmas Challenge #24 - and a DT Call!

Evening, all!

We have a DT Call at The Holly and Ivy so check out the post here fo all the details!

As always, the Challenge is Anything Christmas Goes and it's not just for cards!

However, I did make a card because I wanted to use this digi from Make It Crafty. He is called Floppy and he's so cute!

All the papers are from an ancient Papermania pad, and the sentiment came free with a magazine. The ribbon is from stash. I added lots of Stickles to Floppy's hat to give him some Festive bling!

We are now back to our fortnightly timetable.

Go and see my teamies' creations and check out the DT Call. It's open to anyone!

Thanks for looking! Goodnight, all!
